My Planetarium Gazes Out Into the Expanding WiiWare Library
Posted by Trevor Chan
Hudson's galactic follow-up to its My Aquarium series
Hudson's been releasing some fairly decent and relaxing simulations on the WiiWare service lately. The developer has more than likely extracted all it can from the aquarium route, at least for the time being, however – and an ESRB rating has revealed a new direction that's a lot more cosmic in nature.
My Planetarium is a virtual simulation wherein users can navigate through various parts of space and learn about the myths behind numerous constellations. The following is a section of the ratings summary:
In some of the text describing the mythology of the constellations, there are occasional references to violence; for example, "When the hero Perseus cut off the head of the monster Medusa, the blood which sprang from her neck became Pegasus," "King Cepheus chained Andromeda to a rock on the coast as a sacrifice to the monster," and "Induced into a fit of madness by Hera, Heracles killed his children by tossing them into a fire." One mythological story contains the following phrase: "The enraged king had the god of wine, Dionysus, get Orion drunk."
